West Los Angeles Psychotherapist Dr. Daniel Slavin
I am a licensed psychotherapist in West Los Angeles with over 35 years of experience helping individuals and couples with a wide range of emotional issues, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, and stress as well as life and business coaching.
We are living in a time of mechanical and distant human coldness where freeway chases, mass shootings, and natural disasters keep us from authentic feelings of joy and the potential to love and be loved. Hence, some of our closest friends become our pets.
I will help you break unhealthy habits and improve your self-acceptance, your sense of self-worth, and overall well-being. I set clear and obtainable goals so that you know how to look at your issues and are able to solve them on your own after therapy.
My therapy and counseling specialties include:
Anxiety, fear, and the courage to make it through adversity
Couple Counseling & Marriage Therapy
Self-esteem, Shame issues
Trauma / PTSD or abuse therapy

Hear what patients have to say about Dr. Daniel Slavin, Psychotherapist.
Dr. Slavin provides an atmosphere of safety in a way that it allowed me to openly cry which is an emotion that I internalized most of my life. In my experience, Dr Slavin is brilliant in the way he spoke to me as an individual and does not come from a formula or textbook theories. Dr. Slavin was intuitive regarding my internal needs and the pace and process in which he helped me with complex issues throughout a period of 2 years. I have told people that "Dr. Slavin saved my life" and that is exactly what he did in addition to giving me tangible hope and giving me a sense of self-esteem that I did not even know I lacked. Dr. Slavin also gave me realistic reasons as to why I am a valuable human being and that life is a journey of different processes; not to be afraid of them, and to take joy in day to day life and to be able to understand "to me" what living life fully truly means. -Ann
Dr. Dan Slavin is one of the most extraordinary men I've ever met. I had an extremely difficult issue that I was dealing with and Dan was exceptionally helpful to me. I was at the most vulnerable point in my life, and Dan was able to guide me to a very successful conclusion. He helped me find my peace and equilibrium, emotionally and spiritually. His dignity, his humility, his honesty and his vulnerability in sharing some of his own difficulties made me feel thoroughly understood and appreciated. I live on the East Coast and came out to LA to work with him. I had learned about Dr. Slavin from a colleague in California who told me that his insight and abilities were magnificent. I completely agree with her. I would recommend anyone who needs a masterful psychologist and counselor to reach out to Dr. Slavin. I shall be forever grateful to this man for the help he rendered to me in my hour of darkness and time of need. He has my unequivocal endorsement and my profound appreciation. -Dr. Steve
When I met Dr. Slavin for Therapy, I was in the process of picking up the pieces of my shattered life. Throughout my journey with Dr. Slavin, he gave me the tools I needed to unfold the past and move into the future. He did this with kindness, respect, and amazing communication skills. As I gave Dr. Slavin 100% during our sessions. he gave back 110%. - Paul
